Anthroposophical Medicine


Anthroposophy (anthropos: human being, sophia: wisdom) is a worldview founded by philosopher, scientist and social thinker, Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) that combines practical science with spiritual awareness. Anthroposophically extended medicine is an extension of conventional medicine.  The goal is to consciously understand the interactions of the soul and spirit as well as the body. Viewing one’s whole life and its meaning helps one to see an illness in its larger perspective. Anthroposophically-extended medicine treats all aspects of the individual using practical, western allopathic medicine as a foundation.    We use a wide range of treatments which include homeopathy, nutritional guidelines, artistic and movement therapies to extend the practice of medicine. In Europe there are well established anthroposophical hospitals, clinics, pharmaceutical companies and training centers.  Many other fields of human endeavor have been enriched by Steiner’s work, such as education (Waldorf School), agriculture (Biodynamic Farming), architecture, arts and economics. The late Otto Wolff, in his foreword to The Anthroposophical Approach to Medicine, wrote: “Medicine will be broadened by a spiritual conception of man to an art of healing, or else it will remain a soulless technology that removes only symptoms. Through the concrete inclusion of the spirit and soul of man, a humanization of medicine, as it was inaugurated by Rudolf Steiner, is possible.”

 CSAM is governed by a Board of Directors. CSAM oversees a medical practice, including physicians and anthroposophically trained therapists, and runs education and outreach programs, research projects, and the Rudolf Steiner Health Center.
